1. The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.

    But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out?

  3. ** Please also check out EARTHEREAL II: vimeo.com/adonispulatus/earthereal2

    The International Space Station Expedition 30 crew shot some truly awe-inspiring time-lapse sequences flying over practically every square mile of the globe.

    I downloaded the high-resolution image sets that have been made available by the NASA Johnson Space Center and constructed this short time-lapse film in hi-res 2K project format. I was amazed at how clean the Nikon D3S images turned out (even at ISO 3200 and above) which kept the post-processing requirements to a minimum.

    Images courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center available from: eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ForFun/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/

    Cameras: Nikon D2X and D3S

    Lenses: 28-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 17-35mm f/2.8, 28mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4

    Technique: The majority of the images were shot at 1 second intervals, ISO 200-12800.

    Post Processing:
    :: Downloaded more than 16K hi-res images from NASA for this project
    :: Image sets adjusted in Adobe Lightroom 3.6
    :: Image sets imported into an Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 2K 24p project
    :: Used GBDeflicker for the image sets with shorter exposure times. Highly recommended: granitebaysoftware.com/Products/ProductGBD.aspx
    :: Exported as 2048x1024 24p MP4 @ 75Mbps

    --

    My life as a filmmaker has blessed me with the privilege of seeing some of the most surreal and timeless places on the planet. These images of our Sacred Earth set to music are my way of sharing some of the magic I've experienced along the way...

    "Terra Sacra" ~ Latin for Sacred Earth.

    Terra Sacra Time Lapses is a short film featuring remote landscapes and ancient monuments from around the globe. These images were photographed during my assignments and personal travels between 2006-2012.

    I've combined my favourite shots from these trips into non-narrative film that touches on a theme close to my heart: Sacred Earth.

    The visuals are driven by an original score by composer Roy Milner (roymilner.com). The six-minute film is a journey through three distinct Acts: (I) Primordial Earth (II) Past meets Present and (III) Eternal Universe.

    This film is a personal project to share the beauty and awe I witnessed at these locations. I hope viewers will be moved by the intangible power of our Terra Sacra.

    THANKS TO:

    Endless thanks to Art Wolfe for hiring me to as the cinematographer for the public television series Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge and taking me to the ends of the Earth where most of the shots from Terra Sacra were made. Art, you are an inspiration and the most driven photographer I have ever known! I learned so much working on this show with our amazing crew and have stories to tell for a lifetime!

    Never-ending thanks to friends and colleagues Ian Herring and Maija Leivo of Parallax Film Productions for permission to us shots I took for the television series Ancient Megastructures (National Geographic Channel / History Television) and Battle Castle (Discovery/History Television/ BBC). These assignments provided unprecedented access to some of the world's most iconic ancient landmarks
    parallaxfilm.com

    Infinite thanks to my amazing wife Deddeda for her love and constant encouragement to pursue this project.

    TECHNICAL:

    Most of the time lapses were shot with a Canon 5D at the maximum resolution using a TC-80N3 intervalometer. A few shots were taken with a Canon 7D and Canon 5D mk II.

    All images are single manual exposures, no HDR composites.

    Original full resolution images were colour corrected and processed in 16-bit in Adobe Bridge using Camera Raw and exported as JPEG sequences at maximum quality. The rendered JPEG sets were then opened in Quicktime Pro as image sequences and exported at their native full resolution (up to 5K) as Quicktime movies at 23.98 fps with the Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec. The ProRes 422 (HQ) files were then edited in Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 on a ProRes 422 (HQ) timeline at 23.98. The master file is ProRes 422 (HQ) 1920 x 1080.

    Selected time lapse sequences were also processed using Adobe Bridge and LRTimelapse to smoothen aperture flicker apparent in some shots with large depth-of-field.

    LICENSING:

    If you are interested in licensing any of the shots from the film, please contact me so I can direct you to the appropriate agency.

    WHAT'S NEXT?

    I would love to revisit many of the locations in this film and other powerful sacred sites around the world to create a feature-length "Terra Sacra". The film would combine real-time, slow-motion, and motion control time lapse imagery - all in stereoscopic 3D. If you are an angel investor, potential sponsor, broadcaster, distributor or someone deeply passionate who would would like to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you.

  5. Loneliness, detached, overwhelmed, fascinated, homesick - a year of travelling around the globe on business trips.

    I flew 6 times around the world, spent 1.5 weeks (net) in airplanes 2011 and collected shots the whole year for this project.

    I walked for hours around airports to get the one shot, got nearly arrested at Chicago O'Hare but had some good luck too!

    Filmed at Seoul, Shanghai, Beijing, Chicago, Houston, Dubai, Frankfurt and my home - airport Vienna.

    Shot on Lumix GH1 and GH2 (both hacked), by making use of the ETC mode on the GH2 I was able to get up to 3200mm equiv. focal length.

    Hope you enjoy this!

    If you want to know more about using the GH2, the hack, lens options in general please visit my friend Nino Leitner's blog:
